My buddy’s neighbor owns a bunch of overgrown farm land and once a year let’s us rabbit hunt it. Well this is the 5th year in a row we went out and kicked brush, got tore up from briars and had a blast bustin some bunnies. We were 3 short of a two man limit this year but still plenty for a couple good meals. We are both shooting 20ga, though I think a little .410 may be a lot of fun for next year.

Looks like a fun day, I haven't seen a cottontail in years in my area of NY (W Adirondacks)

Used to go quite a bit, a good day and we'd get a half dozen or so. Haven't been in years but I'm told their numbers are down considerably. Was a lot of fun when the beagles were in em

The last rabbits I shot was in the 80s I used my 54 caliber muzzle loader using round balls can’t remember the charge of powder I used so it didn’t tear them up now but it put a nice round hole through their head and didn’t hurt the meat I do remember I had more fun that day rabbit hunting than I ever did using a 22.

I have a 10” 410/45LC barrel for my TC encore. Great fun on bunnies. Same chambering in the contender is a favorite among the serious rabbit hunters I know. Numbers seem way down here as well. I hunted a lot of pheasant this fall and saw 2 or 3.

We have very few rabbits between hawks owls and coyotes they work them over pretty hard. David

Same here. I'd love to hunt them but clean farming and heavy predation means very few rabbits. They were everywhere when I was a kid. Didn't see a coyote before I turned 40, though. Now they're everywhere, and raptors on every power line.
